Langham Place Hotel, Mongkok, Hong Kong introduces iHome to all suites and club rooms
Hong Kong, 20 October 2006 - As an industry leader providing innovative guest room technology, Langham Place Hotel, Mongkok, Hong Kong establishes yet another benchmark with the introduction of iHome iPod clock radios to all suites and Langham Hotel Club Rooms.
Guests can now enjoy the benefits of iHome with special packages which start from HK00 per day (single occupancy)* and HK50 per day (double occupancy)*.
With full function remote control and rich, natural high fidelity stereo, iHome allows you to wake and sleep to your own music selection on your iPod, radio or alarm tone. As well as automatically charging your iPod, iHome has an auxiliary line-in for portable CD players and MP3 players and it is compatible to all models of iPods. It can also gradually wake you up or lull you to sleep with steadily increasing or decreasing volume.
“We were seeing more and more of our guests traveling with iPods and realised the opportunity for them to play their music in their room just like at home. In the short time we have had iHomes in our Langham Hotel club rooms and suites the feedback from guests has been terrific,” commented Jeffrey Van Vorsselen, General Manager of the Langham Place Hotel.
The arrival of iHome at Langham Place Hotel follows other cutting-edge innovations including Cisco Color IP phones, the current installation of the high-tech NXTV movie system in all guest rooms, as well as the upgrading of the hotel’s broadband internet service to make it the fastest in Hong Kong.
